I found a really good article on Himalayan salt lamps. The author did a thorough job explaining the benefits, so I wanted to pass it on to you!
We all know that soda is bad for us. With is high sugar content, low nutritional value, and artificial chemicals it is essentially liquid candy. Perhaps they are more harmful to the body than just their dietary profile, though?
In 2012, PepsiCo won a small claims case against Ronald Ball. Ball claimed that when he opened up his can of refreshing Mountain Dew he found a mouse carcass floating in it. PepsiCo disputed the claim in an unexpected way. They did not roll out their standards of safety, nor their inspection certificates, nor anything else to show how the mouse could never have gotten into that can in the first place.
Instead, they claimed that the mouse carcass could not have survived being suspended in the bright yellow bubbly liquid 15 months after the can was made. They brought in expects to show that the mouse would have completely dissolved in just 30 days.
More than one YouTube blogger tried their own experiments with a rodent, Mountain Dew, and 30 days. Take a look at the video below and see just how right PepsiCo was. Be warned, it's not pretty.
Help Us Raise a Scholarship Treatment Fund to Treat Seriously Ill Patients Who Cannot Afford the Treatment or Medications
When you lay down on your back your feet are side by side with your toes up. That is the natural configuration for a human being. The feet face forward when standing, the toes provide stability and a grip if one is barefoot. The teenager whose feet appear in the photograph was born with a deformity. As you can see his feet are horizontal when he is lying down and go in the opposite direction. As you can imagine it is very difficult for him to walk, run, or pretty much get by like you do on a daily basis. His mom brought him to our clinic because she doesn’t have a lot of money, lacks insurance; and traditional medicine has utterly failed to provide any sort of healing for him.
We need your help because our doctor actually made a difference in his life.

We are a Naturopathic practice located in Phoenix, Arizona. As you may or may not know in Arizona a Naturopath is considered a primary care physician and has to complete the same sort of educational requirements as a regular MD or DO might. In Arizona a Naturopath has prescription writing privileges. Our clinic presents a traditional medical treatment modality, the kind humanity has had since time immemorial. We first try natural herbs and supplements and if they do not provide relief then we can graduate to a pharmaceutical. But we try to avoid the complications many pharmaceuticals might cause. Our doctor spent years studying the ancient art of osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture, and sojourned with many highly skilled healers; then closely contemplated upon the musculature and skeletal interplay to develop her unique form of body work.
The young boy was stunned to watch his foot gradually straighten up as she worked on the muscle structure and rearranged the nerve/energetic pathways. We aren’t here to get rich, we care about our patients. We have rent, expenses, and have to pay our staff. It occurred to us we could reach out to you to fund a treatment scholarship fund that would be available to those who need treatment but cannot afford it.
If you help fund this project we will, with the patient’s permission and yours, keep you abreast with who we are helping with your contribution and you will receive a personal snail mail thank you note from the patient explaining what your donation has done for their life.
We treat all kinds of illnesses and diseases. Our focus is on helping the patient get well, hence our name is Arizona Wellness.
We have chickens on site (it’s a big piece of property). We feed them only organic feed. Our patients stand in line for our eggs which they swear tastes much better. We have an organic garden and have a network for providing healthy foodstuffs. We recently added bees to have our own honey and pollinate our plants as nature intended. Our perspective is on the entire body. What you eat has a major impact on your health. We are in the process of launching several initiatives to assist those with weight problems. We treat cancer patients and those with chronic pain; stress related complications, and pretty much anything you can think of we have probably worked with a patient suffering through it. Often patients need lab work to isolate a cause of a condition or need tests; these as you know can be expensive so it’s not just our time and staff but third party labs that need to be paid.
Presently we have started a program to train young doctors because we believe conventional medicine is under tremendous pressure to produce numbers and the emphasis is on seeing 30-35 patients a day; whereas; we focus on putting you on the path to wellness.
Please help us help patients in need. 100% of your donation will go directly to helping patients get the care they so desperately deserve. Click here to read more and make a donation today.
